Re: toolbar updater service.exe is consuming lots of cpu time. how do I stop / slow or get rid of it?
On my machine, toolbaruploader.exe is in the C:\Windows\prefetch folder, according to a search using the start/search route, and apparently was installed by a recent upgrade of the AVG Pro antivirus software. As an experiment, I just shut it down using task manager. So far, my machine hasn't crashed. :-)
The AVG added a bunch of irritating extras: So far I've deleted the Uniblue registry fixer thingy and would like to deep-six the AVG isearch toolbar.
